Bottled. An amber beer with a off-white head. The aroma has notes of bread, malt, caramel, and straw. The flavor is malt, caramel, bread, and straw, leading to a bitter finish. Travlr (26412) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Draft at Afterword. Dark amber color, small tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of bitter caramel, if that makes any sense. Taste is full on malt but with enough balance to have a more bitter finish than
most altbieren. omhper (25949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2002

Bottle. Pours a copper, ruby-red hue with a light, creamy head. Lightly malty aroma with hints of cherries and plums. Unique flavor. Slight burnt malt flavor, which also brings some bitterness. Notes of chocolate and dark fruit. Some grass and metal. The finish has some bitterness and earthy malts. Pretty good overall. Definitely a departure from my normal routine. fiulijn (21506) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2009

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2006 Yes, I understand I probably had that beer on its best day the first time around. Sampled on what was obviously a more ordinary day, it’s a slightly coppery amber colour. The aroma is malty, somewhat brassy with a hint of earthiness. Flavour has a lot of bitterness - woody - and dashes of caramel and breadcrusty malts. The flavours are definitely not as bright as previous and the beer simply feels less alive as a consequence. Alcohol hits late, as does a little brown sugar sweetness. Not a bad beer, certainly respectable amongst the overall alt/amber field, but not a worldbeater either. That was pretty much expected, though, as that first experience was so sublime.
